    What's the predictions for this winter? Good for the seasonal guys, or good for the per push guys? We grabbed 3 really nice per push accounts that will more than cover anything the seasonal may go over on.

    Bring on the snow! (in 2 inch increments, starting at 10PM and ending at 2AM)

    Honestly I have not looked to much into yet. From what I seen so far 50/50 shot of a good year. I will look this week. By the end of this month quite a few like to have a good grasp of what is coming up. It will be interesting to see Ohio Valley Forecasting outlook that is for sure. :)

    I've seen him post several times so far that it's still too early to call, but that he feels that people calling for strong el nino bringing warmer and lower precip isn't the way he's thinking it'll go.

    I have a hard time seeing 3 good winters in a row, personally.

    I seen a couple of Josh's posts. It will be interesting to watch this season unfold. :) Hoping for another good year. Customers are probably hoping for a mild one. :)

    Yeah, it'll be interesting. I'd like to see an average season, but over a lot of events. 2 of our new biggest per push accounts have a 1 inch trigger. So we're all sitting around praying for an inch of snow at a time. Full plow/salt at an inch...easy money and a lot less labor.

    Anybody got any or know where to find concrete bin blocks? Redoing our salt storage. None of the ready mix producers around us have any, and one that does, will never return calls. HELP!

    We are parting out a 97 chevy k2500. Tranny was rebuilt a few years ago and as far as I know still works fine. Probably has less than 15k since the rebuild. If you want I can check numbers and see if it matches what you are looking for. Only parting it out cause the old girl has frame issues and is no longer able to be a lot truck any more.

    I found some 4x2 from buckeye ready mix in delaware for $50 a piece. I don't think I can beat that anywhere that close to me. But check it out if you think about it.
